Catering Testimonials
"The Woodlake Country Club was more than I could have ever imagined for my wedding. The staff did an outstanding job and gave me exactly what I wanted while keeping within my wedding budget. The food was excellent. I was skeptical at first when I saw the prices and didn't think it would be as nice as it was or the food would be good. I was so happy when I first visited the country club and saw how beautiful it was. I am so happy we chose them as our reception venue. All of my guests said they had a great time and loved the venue." Siobahn November 2015

"Wonderful! This is a perfect word to describe our experience at Woodlake Country Club. Mary was fun to work with and we felt comfortable when planning our big day. The country club had a delicious menu and our guests loved the mashed potato bar! Rick was very efficient in getting us out on the golf course for our pictures. Since our wedding was in November we were racing against time to take pictures outside. With Rick's help we were hopping in the golf carts in no time and we were able to take beautiful sunset photographs. At the reception Carol was attentive and sweet whenever we needed anything. She led us through the entrances, cake cutting, etc. We felt that Woodlake gave us options for decor, food, etc. all for an affordable price. All of the staff was friendly and professional and we could not be happier with how everything turned out!" Wedding Client November 2015

"Our experience was nothing less than excellent. From our first visit to our wedding day the entire Woodlake staff helped us with everything we asked for. The ceremony and the reception was everything we hoped for and more." Janet November 2015

"Imagine a venue that has the complete package. That venue is called the Woodlake Country Club. My husband and I live in Florida and everyone at this venue answered our questions almost immediately and whenever we spoke on the phone they were VERY professional and always helped with any questions we may have before we could even think of them! Kiersten was excellent!! We could not have asked for a more kind person to take hold of our occasion and help us plan from such a distance! When we finally arrived to NJ and met with Woodlake both Kiersten and Rick were there to help make sure they had everything set up the way WE wanted it so there would be no issues! The day of our wedding I could not believe how many times Kiersten and Rick came to check on us to make sure that everything was at the best level of service possible. Not even to mention the staff and how cheery everyone was. Not an ounce of negativity from any of the staff. Thank you for a GREAT time and for being there for us every step of the way!" Michelle October 2015

"Woodlake Country Club should definitely be considered by any couple that wants a quality wedding reception experience at an affordable price. Mary was phenomenal to work with throughout the wedding planning process. She was always helpful, knowledgeable and prompt. The entire staff on the wedding day (especially Carol) were on the ball and set everything up to complete our vision for the wedding reception site. We were able to customize our wedding reception package to what worked best for our price point. The site is well decorated and the food is OUTSTANDING. All of our guests enjoyed the food, excellent service and the site in general." Jessica September 2015

"From the time we walked in for our first meeting to the last time we walked out after our wedding reception, everything went perfectly! The pricing is affordable and the staff is so accommodating and understanding of your needs. Rick was great to work with and was always there for questions or concerns, if he couldn't talk when you first call he would call you back within hours. The food was absolutely delicious and everything was beautifully decorated. They even made sure our favorite drinks were sitting on the table waiting for us when we arrived!! The staff was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed without being too attentive . The cake and flowers are included in the price and it is so easy to get everything done! I would highly recommend them to anyone, especially if you want a care free process of planning. Thank you again for everything Rick, you made our day truly perfect!" Arielle September 2015

"Fantastic venue. Fantastic value. Mary was more than helpful and the staff was there for everything we needed on the day. Great place. Thanks!" Rob August 2015

"Woodlake Country Club was the absolute BEST place to have my wedding. The entire staff truly made you feel welcome and that they genuinely cared about you. On the day of our wedding, Carol was our Maitre'D. She went above and beyond for my husband and I. I know that the timing of dinner and events is important, and Carol did a wonderful job keeping the pace going smoothly. Whatever I needed - she was right there to make sure it happened. My husband, parents, and I constantly had drinks waiting for us at our table and our napkins were always refolded into beautiful shapes. The staff's attention to detail was impeccable. My bridal party LOVED driving around on the golf carts outside for our pictures. Meanwhile, our guests were able to enjoy cocktail hour. So many people have commented on how lovely cocktail hour was. They appreciated that there was a place for everyone to sit and the smashed potato bar was a hit! When it was time for the reveal of the ballroom, I was so excited to see it. I honestly cried when I walked in because it was everything that I had pictured in my head and more. They did an amazing job, and it truly looked beautiful! The venue itself is gorgeous and there is plenty of room to move around. I cannot say enough about how pleased I am with my wedding at Woodlake. As a bride, I felt completely relaxed and reassured that everything would go smoothly. Our coordinator Kiersten answered all of my emails immediately. I truly appreciated the fast correspondence. I would HIGHLY recommend Woodlake Country Club to any couple who want a memorable evening with a caring and trustworthy staff." Christine July 2015

"I cant say enough good things about Woodlake Country Club! The ballroom is beautiful. The food was Delicious. The staff is super helpful and I loved my wedding coordinator. Kiersten was amazing, she answered all of my questions over my 12 months of planning! She was very quick to answer any of my emails. When the day finally came everything was perfect. They worked with all my requests and made every attempt to make the day truly special for my husband and I! I would recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married." Stephanie June 2015

"All of the staff bends over backwards especially Mary our Banquet Manager. She is like Family now. Our friends & family are still talking about Woodlake. The food is delicious, presentation is beautiful and service top notch. We used several of their preferred vendors including Vei Limo & Chocolate Carousel Bakery and they reflected the same top quality service. Glad we found them they made our Wedding Day everything we wanted and More!" Debi June 2015

"Woodlake Country Club was wonderful for our wedding reception! Mary was very accommodating and was very helpful every step of the way! Whenever I had a question, she was quick to respond.

It was everything I hoped for and more!" Lauren June 2015

"We had our wedding at Woodlake in May and had a wonderful experience.There was plenty of food, the staff was professional and went out of their way to please our guests. Mary was wonderful to work with and was very accommodating to us. The price was extremely reasonable. With the help of Woodlake our wedding day was stress free and memorable." Wedding Client May 2015

"Choosing to have our wedding at Woodlake Country Club is something I am so glad we did. From food tasting, meetings in between and the big day itself, everything was perfect. Working with Mary, Rick and the rest of the staff was such a pleasure. Everyone was so helpful, organized and accommodating. Not only did they go above and beyond to help us capture amazing photos on their beautiful golf course (which was an amazing memory and such a fun moment for our bridal party to ride the carts), but the ceremony and reception itself came together like a dream. They partner with an amazing florist and baker. A wedding can be overwhelming, but anything that had to do with working with our venue was simple and a pleasure. I highly recommend this venue for any event." Wedding Client 2015

"I am emailing you to again let you know just how pleased we were with everything at the Woodlake Country Club for our daughter's wedding on May 2, 2015. I could not have asked for a more perfect day. Everyone on your staff from the person setting up the ceremony area to the serving staff were wonderful and very accommodating. You and Mary made sure every request of the bride or groom was immediately addressed. Mary was very patient and understanding of a mother (me) who was stressing at the beginning of the day and for that I will be forever grateful. Everyone I have spoken with since that day cannot say enough good things about the food as well. Both quality and quantity, unsurpassed. I would HIGHLY recommend the Woodlake Country Club to anyone looking for a 1st class establishment to hold their party. Again, we thank everyone for everything that was done to make our daughter's wedding a day we will all remember for a very long time." Donna and Tom Cardinale May 2015

"Thomas and I can't thank you enough for all that you did! Everything met and exceed our expectations. Our guests kept telling us how great the food was and how much they enjoyed themselves. We would recommend WCC to anyone!" - Michelle and Thomas 2014

Manasquan High Scholl class of 1957.. Because of the staff and venue it was one of the best. Will recommend Woodlake Country Club to anyone planning a reunion, wedding or a family get together." -Andy 2013

"I am the chapter administrator for an HR association which has a dinner planning meeting for the executive board.  in the past the request has been for a waterfront location here at the Jersey Shore.  Woodlake CC was recommended by one of our board members instead.  Kiersten was easy to communicate with via email and phone. The menu was extensive and the quoted per person all inclusive price listed open bar, 10 passed hors d'oeurves, 3 entree pre-selected entree choices with salad and dessert.  The price was more than reasonable, the food was great and the service was excellent.  Highly recommend for any corporate or social event." - Kathy 2013

"I cannot rave enough about how wonderful the Woodlake staff is! I have been in the catering/wedding business for almost 9 yrs and consider myself to be the harshest of critics. My husband and I literally visited every banqueting facility and no other place came CLOSE to the Woodlake CC! We had a blast planning our wedding! I was so afraid that being in the banquet business I would be incapable of being 100% satisfied with the place I would choose because I know all the gimmicks and tricks banquet halls play on you, but the Woodlake is one place I will go back to time and time again! I can't believe how perfect everything was! Food was delicious, staff was curtious and went out of their way from start to finish to make us welcome. Waitstaff was attentive and all my guests have been RAVING! We had the best night of our lives! Thanks Woodlake!" Courtney October 2012

"We are happy to be back at Woodlake after trying other locations that failed to meet our needs"-Ocean County Mother of Multiples, 2012

"We really enjoyed the event at Woodlake Country Club. Everything was perfect. We were so fortunate we could find this place." -Esha & Kevin Engagement, 2012

"I just want to thank you for the beautiful job you did for my mother's retirement party. Everyone who attended thought the night was just wonderful. The food was delicious, the service outstanding and every detail we asked for was provided. As we were coming in with boxes, one of your workers immediately came out to help and be there at the end of the nght to carry things back out. We couldn't have asked for better weather which made the view from the buffet area a pleasure to look at. I could gush on but just want to let you know we are thrilled with the evening. I certainly wouldn't hesistate to recommend you to anyone wishing to host an affair. Thank you for making her night one she will remember forever." Kampf Retirement Party, 2012

"Thank you so much for a wonderful time"-Tretter-Papernik Wedding, 2012
